The Spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Ebonyi State Chapter, Nwoba Chika Nwoba is still languishing in Abakaliki Correctional Centre despite being granted bail.

9News Nigeria reports that Nwoba’s ordeal started in February when he accused the Ebonyi State Commissioner for Commerce, Oguzor Offia-Nwali of embezzling money meant for hawkers in the State.

He was arrested in February following a petition by the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry in Ebonyi State, Oguzor Offia-Nwali.

Oguzor Offia-Nwali alleged that Mr Nwoba had in a series of posts on Facebook defamed him, threatened his life and falsely accused him of fraud and diversion of state government funds meant for the empowerment of petty traders in the state.

Meanwhile, after two months of being in prison, the Governor of Ebonyi State, Ogbonna Nwifuru, on Sunday asked Offia-Nwali to temper justice with mercy, and consider standing down the case he has with Chika Nwoba.

This is following a bail application which was granted by a court in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State Capital.

In a statement seen by 9News Nigeria on Sunday signed by Leo Ekene Oketa, Special Assistant to the Governor said the Governor as well, implored the Secretary to State Government (SSG), Prof. Mrs. Grace Umezurike, to kindly heed the court’s submission regarding Chika Nwoba’s bail condition, and oblige by signing as surety to ensure he meets his bail conditions.
